Obama State Of The Union Address: President Reportedly Threatened To Blame Reps
When Boner can't even get a consensus about a million dollar tax threshold, you can see how far apart the crazy right Republicans are.
It will take Boner to swing some Republicans with common sense to team up with Democrats to get anything passed.
Grover Norquist, whose entire career is literally based on the principle that Republicans cannot compromise on raising taxes under any circumstance, is upset That Obama has ‘not been negotiating’
and by negotiating of course he means give in to every one of their demands.
Grover Norquist once said that "bipartisanship is another name for date rape". Somehow I doubt that he and his followers are willing to negotiate in good faith. besides the republicans shot down THEIR OWN PLAN. I don't know why anyone would expect the president to step forward with a new compromise after that.
And what's the Dem plan again. Billions in pretend cuts in exchange for a few trillion in spending and no debt cap. Wow ... just wow!
Well wait, did you call out the "Billions in pretend cuts" in the Paul Ryan plan, Romney plans (well, whatever we could muster from one), and well....the so-called plans from Boner?
